Age Range: 4 – 11
Ideal Number of Players: 6+
Equipment Needed: Music
What To Do
The players begin by dancing and skipping about the room with the music playing.
When the music stops players have to freeze into ‘statues’. As long as the music is off players must hold their statue poses. Anyone who moves or makes a sound is out of the game.
After a few moments the music starts again and the statues come back to life.
Music should be left off only briefly.
VARIATIONS: Play faster music which makes it harder to stay still!
Eliminated players can try to get those left in out, by making faces, telling jokes and so on in the attempt to get those left in to move.
